You may be feeling the need to try something new with your hair. However, if you have long locks, you may be a little reluctant to chop it all off – but that doesn’t have to be the case. Why? Well, because you can simply switch up your long hair with fringe hairstyle!
Luckily for you long-haired lasses out there, bangs are back, thanks to the fact that fashion-forward celebrities like Zendaya, Bella and Gigi Hadid, and Kylie Jenner have recently been spotted rocking fringes on and off-duty. So, whether you’re after a blunt, choppy, or even middle-parted bangs, we’ve got you covered. Just have a scroll through our gallery for some fringe with long hair inspiration, and book that appointment, pronto.
7 Fringes for long hair: Our fave looks from Instagram
Want to rock a blonde fringe, but scared that it’ll look too harsh against your dark brows? Don’t worry, there’s a way to avoid that: just make sure to get your stylist to cut you a Kate Moss-inspired, light, choppy fringe that won’t sit unpleasantly over your bold eyebrows. Well, if it works for Kate… Credit: @enola_jay
Alternatively, if you want fringes for long hair that will help cover and balance your face, why not opt for a full fringe and long hair? If you ask us, fashion blogger Susie Bubble’s got this eye-grazing bangs spot on. Want more advice? Find out what the best fringes for your face shape are, here! Credit: @susiebubble
Looking to spruce up your long ombre locks? Then work in a bold, blunt fringe and make sure the colour graduation starts just below it for the chicest effect. Just don’t forget to use a shampoo and conditioner specifically for coloured hair – we especially love the Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner with its Vibrant Colour Lock technology, it’ll leave coloured hair feeling silky and manageable.

Need long hairstyles with bangs for wavy tresses? Then we’ve got the perfect fringe for you! Ask your stylist for a long, full fringe, that has very subtle layers worked in at the ends. The style will still look full (great for those with heart-shaped or square faces), but not too heavy or overbearing. If in doubt, take this picture with you to the salon! Credit: @brooketestoni
Editor’s tip: To make your bangs look as textured as the rest of your wavy hair, spritz some Toni&Guy Matt Dry Shampoo on your fringe at arm’s length and work it in with your fingers.
If you’re not sure you want to commit to bangs for good, this long, grown-out fringe is the perfect option, as you can easily clip it away to the sides. Plus, you can still rock a nonchalant middle parting – like mega babe Sienna Miller – which won’t take too long to grow out if you do decide you’re not a fringe fan, after all.
But that’s not all: another bonus of this look is that this manageable fringe requires minimal styling in the mornings, meaning you really can have it all (including those precious, extra few minutes in bed!). Credit: @denimdudes
If you’re worried that your light-coloured bangs will clash with your eyebrows, don’t worry: all you need to do is opt for a soft, feathered fringe, which will work to complement, rather than clash with, your brows. Seriously, is there anything long hairstyles with a fringe can’t do for us?! Credit: @valery_vision
A long fringe doesn’t just work well on thick hair, it just so happens to look super sleek on fine, silky tresses, too. But since you don’t want your tresses to fall flat, make sure to get your stylist to build some long layers into your fringe and mane, so that your hair doesn’t look too limp. And that’s all there is to it: you’ve got yourself a fresh new look for the year ahead! Credit: @binahwigs
